Teachers pension - flat rate or progressive?

    Hi everyone,

    I’m trying to find out if the % deducted from a teachers salary is a flat rate or progressive.

    For example if you earn £30k do you pay 7.4% on salary earned up to £28,168 and then 8.6% on the remaining salary. Or will someone on £30k have to pay 8.6% on the whole amount?

    Many thanks!

    I’m pretty certain it’s the whole amount as there have been examples here of teachers going up a point on the pay scale then ending up with a smaller take home pay for this very reason.

    It works differently to income tax.
